Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Mid90s is the debut directorial effort by actor & comedian Jonah Hill, a skateboarding coming of age story set in LA in the… well, I’ll let you guess. In short it’s a revelation. Hill delivers a super authentic film with a naturalistic cast, unflashy direction and a killer lead performance by Sunny Suljić in his first headlining role. Mid90s is at times a brutal look at growing up, with the highs and lows as Sunny encounters love, lust, friendship loneliness and self-discovery.
Best Bit:Jonah Hill modest direction
